Ritz offers matinee

Tickets are $3. The season’s matinee movie series is “Close, but No Cigar,” featuring some of the greatest actresses never to win an Academy Award for Best Actress.

It has been years since the most important Nazi leaders had been tried. This trial is about four judges who used their offices to conduct Nazi sterilization and cleansing policies. Retired American judge Dan Haywood has a daunting task ahead of him. The Cold War is heating up and no one wants more trials, as Germany and allied governments want to forget the past. But is that the right thing to do?

Starring Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Richard Widmark, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland and Maximilian Schell, “Judgement at Nuremberg” is directed by Stanley Kramer.
